An experience of a lifetime!

Get to befriend and work alongside your very own elephant and its mahout (elephant trainer). Learn the secrets and ways of life of this ancient practice; how to ride an elephant, train it, feed it…and even get splashy and bathe it!

The Basic Mahout Course at Baan Kwan Chang begins with an introduction on elephant health and biology including body language, which will offer you insights into Thailand’s cherished elephants. With the number of elephants in the wild dwindling, their future is in man’s hand and the more we understand them and work alongside them, the better their outlook will become.

Following the introduction, a ‘hands on’ experience will be the day’s highlight where you and your elephant can paint, bathe, ride and have fun together.

During the memorable farewell ceremony, all participants will receive a certificate of achievement to take home to cherish. Group photos will help your memories linger for years to come.



A fantastic chance to get to know the real professional mahouts - find out what they do everyday for their elephants and learn the secrets of becoming a mahout.
